Chandigarh, November 16
A billion hearts rejoiced on Wednesday as Team India defeated New Zealand by 70 runs in the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, to secure a berth in the finals of the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023, with star batter Virat Kohli’s record 50th ODI century being the cherry on top.
The Indian batting order’s fiery play was complemented by a classy bowling performance by the players, especially Mohammed Shami.
Shami’s seven-wicket haul in 9.5 overs was impressive, to say the least. Praising the pacer’s performance, Delhi Police exchanged some friendly banter with their Mumbai counterparts.
Taking to X, Delhi Police tagged Mumbai Police and asked them not to book Shami for the “assault” he inflicted on the Kiwis.
“@MumbaiPolice hope you do not book @MdShami11 for the tonight’s assault,” wrote Delhi Police.
Going neck and neck with Delhi Police’s sense of humour, Mumbai Police responded, “You missed pressing charges of steaking innumerable hearts @DelhiPolice and listing a couple of co-accused too (laughing emoji). P.S.: Dear citizens, both the departments know the IPC thoroughly and trust you for a great sense of humour.”
